Great thread. I am sure that I will use it in the future when I am crazy enough to try and rebuild my transmission. For now, thankfully, I dont have any issues and hope that day is far, far away.

I did however use your thread to re-seal my transmission as the seams were leaking.

It is a great step by step even for just a re seal, but I did get stuck at one point trying to get the transmission end off.

Tonight I see that another BB member had the exact same issue and feel a bit guilty I didnt post for others and save them some aggrevation.

So to clear my conscious and hopefully help future users, here are a few steps that I hope will help.

Remove the rubber washer and 2 sliding plates.

Pull up on this plate. Its in there pretty tight as its a press fit, but nothing else is holding onto it, so pull up and remove.

Remove this final ring by pulling it up and out. It is keyed so you will be able to put it back correctly.

Note the washers on the sides of the shifter. The driver side has a thick washer and the passenger side has a thin washer plus a wave washer. They have to be re installed the same way.

Honey, this is the last thing I have to do, then I'm finished. It'll just be a minute.
